Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam


1. Established the correct Message of Islam

Say: Surely, as for me, my Lord has shown me the straight path, a right religion, the creed of Ibrahim, the upright, and he was not of the polytheists.
Say: Surely, my prayer and my sacrifice and my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds.
He has no partner, and this am I commanded, and I am the first of those who submit (to Him). (6:161-163)

Say (O beloved Prophet): Truly, I am commanded to worship Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience.
And I am commanded to be the first of those who submit (to Him). (39:11-12)

2. Preacher to all humanity

O mankind! The (Prophetic) Messenger has come to you with the truth from your Lord. Then believe; (it is) better for you. But if you disbelieve, still, surely, to Allah belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth, and Allah is ever Knower, Wise. (4:170)

Blessed is He Who has sent down to His bondman the Criterion (of right and wrong), that he may be a warner to the entire world. (25:1)

And We have not sent you (O beloved Prophet) except as a bringer of good tidings and a warner to all mankind; but most of the people do not know. (34:28)

3. He is Bashir and Nadhir (Bearer of glad tidings and a warner)

O people of the Scripture! Indeed, Our (Prophetic) Messenger has come to you making clear to you (Our Commands) after a break of the (coming of the Prophetic) Messengers, lest you say: There came not to us any bearer of glad tidings or a warner (against evil), so indeed there has come to you a bearer of glad tidings and a warner, and Allah has power over all things. (5:19)

4. Invites people to Islam

Say: This is my way. I invite towards Allah, I and those who follow me having inner-sight, and Glory be to Allah, and I am not of the idolaters. (12:108)

5. Even the jinn respond to his call

And when we inclined towards you (O beloved Prophet) certain of the jinn, listening to the Qur'an and, when they were in its presence, said: Be silent; then, when it was finished, they turned back to their people, warning.
They said: O our people! We have heard a Scripture which has been revealed after Musa, confirming that which was before it, guiding to the truth and to a right path.
O our people! respond to Allah's summoner and believe in Him, He will forgive you some of your sins and guard you from a painful punishment. (46:29-31)

6. He brought the truth

And say: The truth has come and the falsehood has vanished away. Undoubtedly, the falsehood is ever bound to vanish. (17:81)

And he who has come with the truth and he who accepts it as the truth, such are those that guard (against evil). (39:33)

7. A perfect guide to be followed

Say (O beloved Prophet): O mankind! I am the (Prophetic) Messenger of Allah to you all, of Him to Whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. None is to be worshipped except Him. He gives life and He causes death. So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, who believes in Allah and in His Words, and follow him so that you may be guided. (7:158)

8. He brought a new law (Shari'a)

Those who follow the Messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find written down in the Tawrat and the Injil (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong, and will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that were upon them. Then those who believe in him, and honour him and help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him; and they are the successful. (7:157)

9. He calls you to that which gives you life

O you who believe! Answer (the call of) Allah and the (Prophetic) Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life, and know that Allah comes between the man and his own heart, and that to Him you shall be gathered. (8:24)

10. Brings people from darkness into light

A (Prophetic) Messenger reciting to you the clear revelations of Allah so that he may bring forth those who believe and do good works from the darkness into the light. And whosoever believes in Allah and does good deeds, He will admit him into Gardens (of Paradise) underneath which streams flow, to abide therein forever. Allah has indeed made good provision for him. (65:11)

11. His religion prevails over all religion

He is (the One) Who has sent His (Prophetic) Messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may cause it to prevail over all the religions. And Sufficient is Allah as Witness. (48:28)
